Tamarind, which was the first Indian restaurant in London to win a Michelin star, has closed and will reopen late summer or early autumn. The new-look restaurant will be “a place where you’ll feel like a member of a private club, but you won’t have to pay through the roof to be one,” according to PR and brand consultancy The PC Agency.
The revamped Tamarind will also bring to London “a whole new and much needed dining concept,” it says.
The restaurant is part of the Tamarind Collection, which also owns London-based Indian restaurants Zaika of Kensington and the more informal Tamarind Kitchen in Soho.
The company is also due to launch a South Indian restaurant in the capital, which it says will bring a flavour of the southern states of the subcontinent that are ‘influenced by the bountiful coastline and coconut-laden beaches found in the region’.
Tamarind opened in London in 1995 and won a Michelin star in 2001. It is one of only a handful of Indian restaurants in the world to hold the accolade.
